Windows 7: BSODs...possibly hardware

BSODs...possibly hardware

I did an upgrade on a computer about a week ago. After about 4 days it started BSODing. It wa so bad that I couldnt get the minidump out and have tried reinstalling 7 and even the Vista factory image. However, it would BSOD before the image would fully load. Clearly this is a hardware issue though I unpluged everything I could during the boots. The BSOD right now has the numbers 0x00000050, 0xFFFFFA8086311888, 0XX0000000000000000, 0XFFFFF800108D0AA9, 0X0000000000000005.

Any ideas on what this could be...I need to get this working...

Errors loading images would indicate to me that your RAM is faulty.
Try removing all but one RAM module and using the process of elimination you should be able to find which ones are causing the problem.
If you have another OS installed like XP, run MEMTest. If you get ANY errors you know you have faulty RAM.
